This sleek black bar makes for a chic spot to shake and stir the cocktails while guests keep you company seated on the contemporary barstools. Distressed, pillowed-edge American Walnut flooring is on display here and throughout the apartment.
A large window above the sink provides plenty of natural light to the dark bar area. The jet black walls and black and white photographs help separate the bar area from the rest of the living room, giving it a unique feel.
Soft black cabinets contrast against gray countertops in this sophisticated kitchen bar area. Mirrored tiles add a glamorous touch as the backsplash, while a mini refrigerator and smart shelving provide storage for wine bottles and essential glassware.
This inviting foyer features a black metal spiral staircase with matching railing and wood stair treads. A glass hexagon chandelier is positioned above a round mirrored glass table with potted flowers. A black dyed cowhide rug finishes off the look of the space.
Enclosed stairs also serve as a rustic, cabin style playhouse with orange shutters and a laminate exterior made to look like reclaimed wood. Patterned wall-to-wall carpet unifies the space and adds a playful element that the kids won't outgrow.
Laminate flooring creates the look of real, reclaimed wood on the clubhouse. Orange shutters and a miniature door inject a vibrant pop of color into this space. Patterned carpet brings a funky touch to the playroom while also being softer and safer for little ones.
